Nintendo shares jump after Switch console sets U.S. sales records

Nintendo has finally revealed some concrete sales figures for its new hybrid console/handheld, the Nintendo Switch.

In a press release shared a few hours ago, Nintendo announced that NPD data confirmed that the Switch sold over 906K console units in the United States during last month.

Nintendo also said today that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has sold 1.3 million units; more 925,000 were sold on Switch and nearly 460,000 on Wii U.

REDMOND, Wash., April 13, 2017 - Nintendo Switch, the new home gaming system that people can also take on the go, has sold faster in its launch month than any other video game system in Nintendo history.

This, unsurprisingly, makes it the fastest selling Zelda game in Nintendo's history, too.

Even though sales have been off to a fast start, Nintendo hasn't been able to keep up with demand for the console. We can also expect to see a brief update on the console's roster of indie games - or Nindies, as they insist on calling them - plus news on some upcoming 3DS titles.

Either way, it's an impressive first month of sales for Nintendo's new console; whether the long-time Japanese game console maker can sustain that momentum is another question altogether. Considering there have only been 906,000 Switches sold, that meant some bought more than one, probably the limited edition and a regular copy. The Wii U's best-selling Zelda game, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, sold roughly 2.11 million copies between September 2013 and December 2016. After the reminder that later this month every Switch owner will purchase their second game for the console thanks to the release of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe came a number of cool game announcements for 2017. Nintendo at least admits that they are having supply problems, partly because they didn't expect the Switch to sell this fast.

Nintendo has a hit on their hands even though Zelda is the only worthwhile game to buy right now.
